Formatted abstract This study investigates the economic consequences, if any, of Approved Accounting standard ASRB 1012 "Foreign Currency Translation" on firms in the Australian mining industry. The hypotheses predict that firms decreased their reliance upon long-term foreign debt, increased their relative levels of long-term domestic debt and increased their financing from share capital and/or reserves. Tests are conducted across the mining industry, between the deferral and the immediate recognition firms and within the deferral firms.

The results suggest that there are economic consequences associated with the introduction of ASRB 1012. Firms decreased their proportionate levels of long-term foreign debt and increased their share capital and/or reserves over the test period. However, firms did not increase their domestic long-term debt.' This suggests that increasing domestic debt is costly for firms even though it is a less risky alternative to foreign debt in terms of exposure to exchange rate fluctuations.
